We went on the ATV tour to Playa Rincon. We chose this company because of the positive reviews and they were right on. Beyond the reviews it has a lot else going for it in comparison to the competition: $100 for two people on one machine and visit to Playa Rincon which were not available on the other ATV tours. We booked less than 24 hours in advance and got an email confirmation within a few hours. A car was sent to our hotel to pick us up and when we got to the staring point we found that we were the only guests so we had a private tour! Melvin was wonderful and noticed pretty early that my wife was not comfortable on the back of the ATV and then switched her to ride with him in the dune buggy. He provided all kinds of interesting information and the ride on the highway, dirt road, beach and off road was varied and lots of fun. There was also the obligatory stop at a roadside (tourist) shop which sold fruit, souvenirs and cigars. We were in such a good mood that we were happy to spend our money there on fruit based oils, possibly of dubious value :-). We highly recommend Tauro Tours!

Melvin is a very professional tour guide and he can be trusted. He is fair with his prices very reliable, has contacts all over the region and he knows what he's doing. You get exactly what you paid for with Melvin and there are no hidden charges or unexpected costs. He can organise any kind of tour you are interested in the Samana region. I recommend you reach out to him for anything you need. He is available on WhatsApp on (+18496588997)

Melvin was phenomenal, i started planning this trip in July and since then we were in constant communication. Everything I had planned he and his team made it happened. We went to Cayo Levanto, El parque de los Haites, Playa Rinco, Cayo Frio and Salto del Limon. Due to Covid everything was planned privately and man did we enjoy it. The food was just amazing and the drinks were top notch. This was the best birthday ever and it was thank to Melvin and his team. I truly recommend to message him and arrange all your tours with him.

Melvin was amazing, since the moment our friend reached out to him, he demonstrated his professionalism and passion for what he does. He is a great guide and excellent person, he makes you feel comfortable and safe. He made the trip even better. I would definitely recommend him for your tours and fun at Samaná. Thank you Melvin and everyone else involved during this amazing experience.

This man is quick to answer and can set you up with anything Samana has to offer. Melvin at Tauro Tours fixed for us to do a half day ATV tour, hotel pickup was by the actual guide, who showed us around the beautiful countryside passing farms and plantations, cliffs, we stopped at the marble quarry first, then Boca Del Diablo blow hole, quick swim stop at La Playita Punta Galeras. Then onto the Dominican produce tasting, after that we went to the east end of Playa Rincon swam in the sea and took some pictures, then to the west end where we went upstream at Rio Canyon Frio swimming in the clearest water in the island. Guide was very good, rode very safe but still a fun speed. Delivered us back to the hotel once we were done. Tour is carried out by J Raven Action Tours at the Las Galeras Texaco. Melvin accepts PayPal payment which was more convenient he is also extremely attentive, he even met us on the tour and made sure everything was going good!

Melvin was a great tour guide! Very knowledgeable of the area and everyone knows this man! He is like a local celebrity! He arranged every detail from our transportation from SDQ to lunch during our tours.

We did an ATV tour to Playa Rincon, Zipline over Lulu River, and a relaxing visit to Playa del Valle. Melvin truly represents the people of Samana with his warmth and friendly attitude. Very professional and punctual. Also, everyone that he works with is friendly and professional. We felt secure and comfortable the whole time.

Samana is a beautiful province and I highly recommend contacting Tauro Tours for your adventure!

Melvin and team are the BEST!!!
He had someone ride with my fiancé because I tend to go a little fast. While accommodating both of us, he took us through great trails and explained all points of interest. He arranged an amazing lunch on beach!!!
Totally Recommend his tours.

Melvin and his team were very friendly, accommodating, and on point with everything. He made sure that we had a great time and was very informative. We always had plenty of time to enjoy the sites and never felt rushed. All the lunches were amazing...delicious food!!

We would like to leave some nice words here about Melvin and Robinson! They made our time on Samana really special. We experienced trip to Los Haitises and also we had Robinson like private driver for one day. Melvin is kind guy with big heart and he is listening his tourist and trying to get what they actually want. Robinson was patient all day driving us to places where we wanted also with a small surprise from locals. If you will visit Las Galeras, dont hesitate to contact Melvin and asks him about trips!

Thank you so much Dani, Anna and Veronika
